Abstract

Magnesium diboride (MgB2) is a potential superconductor materials that could be applied as superconducting wires due to its relatively high critical temperature. To study the influence of carbon nanotubes (CNT) on MgB2 wire manufacture, CNT-doped MgB2 superconducting wires have been fabricated from MgB2 and CNT powders sheathed in a SS304 stainless steel tube. In the process, the mixtures of MgB2 and CNT powders were inserted into the SS304 tubes and then were rolled and drawn. The properties of the fabricated superconducting wires were then analyzed through the crystal structure, surface morphology and temperature dependence of resistivity. The addition of CNT did not seem to have a significant influence on the crystal structure of Magnesium diboride. However, the addition of CNT caused the particle size of MgB2 became smaller. The temperature dependence of resistivity results showed that the critical temperatures were shifting linearly toward low temperatures due to the addition of CNT.
